Some important information about High Holidays at CBH

  • Our holiday services are child-friendly. Children and teens are encouraged to attend with their families.
  • For children in fifth grade and below who are not comfortable in regular services, we will have babysitting and children’s programming beginning at 9:30 am. (Older children and teens are encouraged to attend the main service.)
  • A Youth and Family Service will be held during the morning on both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. This service is especially intended for all our young people from pre-k through sixth grade. Parents are welcome to join their children for the service, after which babysitting and children’s programming will resume. On Rosh Hashanah the children will join the main shofar service.
  • There will also be a Teens-only discussion group on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur simultaneous with the Youth and Family service.
  • The regular morning services begin at 9:30 a.m.  Feel free to come for as much of the service as works for you and your family.
  • Tashlich will immediately follow the Rosh Hashanah morning service (after we  have all had a snack at the oneg). Please plan to join us for a brief stroll to the nearby river to cast our sins away.
  • Our annual communal Break-the-Fast will follow the Yom Kippur evening service.  When registering, please be sure to indicate how many will be attending.

High Holiday Appeal

Like all synagogues, CBH depends on the generosity of its members to maintain our community. Dues and fees cover only a part of our expenses. At the High Holidays, we ask you to give as generously as you can to the High Holiday Appeal so we can continue to support all our services and programs as well as our beautiful building.
